Englewood is currently being gentrified, and many of the residents have been displaced. The neighborhood has great bones, but mostly has been left for the incoming gentrifyers to fix the neighborhood. Englewood is my home, and I was raised in that neighborhood. I would love to see a restoration of the neighborhood. Even if the neighborhood wasn't being gentrified, Englewood has many hidden gems. Those gems include, fantastic restaurants, beautiful gardens, and some amazing street art. As a new age is coming to Englewood, I hope that the history and great things that are there now wont be removed. I instead wish for them to be highlighted.

As being a resident of Englewood my entire life I have seen this neighborhood grow into the place it is today. Besides the new gentrification happening I wouldn't be happier, Englewood is feeling like a safe place again and not just an infamous neighborhood is known for run-down houses and gangbangers on each street. I actually feel safe walking to and from school and even down to bus stops but one thing I must say that there is a lot of work to do for obtaining resources for our community that actually inside of the community. Barely any grocery stores, foods besides fast and junk food, and no shopping centers neither. If Englewood fights gentrification prices and brings more resources to the community we will be better than ever before.
Englewood Chicago can be a deadly place if you are not careful the only reason me and my family have stayed safe for so long is because we live in between two school and and lot of police hang around these schools. However danger has still come close, there have several shootings of the years that have been right next door or at the at the end of our block and sometimes behind us. There are at least 3 gangs that sit on both sides of the park even the residents can sometimes pose a threat because they are and can be ignorant.
